Whoever came up with the slogan, “Everything is bigger in Texas,” had to be talking about the 26-acre estate located on Austin’s Lake Travis. “Villa Del Lago,” a 15,400-square-foot home, is up for grabs at $45 million.

The mansion has come a long way quickly; built in 2004 by Sendero Homes of Austin, the enormous home was listed in 2013 for just $15 million.

Villa Del Lago has six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, four half-bathrooms, and five fireplaces under an Italian-themed roof with copper domes, clay tiles, and skylight elements. Almost every room in the house has a magnificent view of Lake Travis.

“Villa Del Lago is among the finest estates available in Austin and offers incredible waterfront views from the south shore of Lake Travis,” Gary Dolch of Compass told Culturemap.

The massive house boasts impressive amenities, including an elevator, a gourmet chef’s kitchen, custom-made stone staircases, a wine cellar, a theater, a library, a bar, a gym, a half-court for basketball, a massage room, a five-car garage, a fish pond, and waterfalls.

And for those who like to stay prepared, Villa Del Lago has the ultimate doomsday prepper feature.

“Inside the house, a secret stairwell leads to a safe room enclosed with four concrete walls, a solid metal door, and a hidden dedicated wiring and ventilation system,” the listing says.

For outdoor and water enthusiasts, there is a negative-edge pool on the estate that includes a restroom, hot tub, fire pit, built-in grill, smoker, and mini-fridge. A marina with a deck and two boat spaces is also available.

The property even comes with its own event space, a separate pavilion where weddings and other celebrations can be held. The amenities are a secured entry, catering-grade kitchen, valet area, ample parking, a massive fireplace, two-story ceilings, two bars, and two bathrooms.

Complete with a fireplace, two bars, and two bathrooms, the “dramatic pavilion sits exclusively on a hillside hollow with captivating, breath-taking views of the lake and big Texas sunsets,” making “a perfect venue for special events,” the listing reads.
